Our Patrons’ donations can benefit the Salzburg Festival in different ways. Depending on the Patron’s personal preferences, donations can be directed towards general programming support, the financing of a specific artistic project or the realization of important building improvements.

The Salzburg Festival thanks the Patrons who support it so generously:

Prof. Dr. Dr. Herbert Batliner
Prof. Dr. h.c. mult. Reinhold Würth

Gerhard Andlinger †
Donald Kahn †

If you are interested in supporting the Salzburg Festival as a Patron and would like to receive more information about the various current projects, please let us know and we will be in touch with you as soon as possible. Of course we are always available to answer your questions personally, provide further information, and to help you design a sponsorship package tailored to your individual needs and expectations.


“Aren’t you afraid that the sponsors will try to influence your program?” is a common question in the arts sections of various newspapers, especially since we have been so successful in acquiring sponsors. And I can always answer both spontaneously and honestly: No, I am not afraid of that. Our sponsors are far too intelligent not to know that trying to influence the content of our program would have a boomerang effect. On the contrary, I hope our sponsors continue to influence us, in the sense that they make it possible to implement projects that we could not realize otherwise for lack of money. Therefore, on behalf of the Festival, I would very much like to thank our sponsors, donors, supporters and friends as well as the public authorities subsidizing the Festival for their generous support.

Helga Rabl-Stadler
President of the Salzburg Festival
